Electrical issues brought operations on the CT&V to a grinding halt this week. Mechanics and engineers (the other kind) have been hard at work repairing and upgrading the railway’s locomotives and track.

Track upgrades are system wide, but major locomotive upgrades are being conducted on the Everett Team Track.

When the upgrade process began, many CT&V trains were left in locations deemed convenient for the upgrade work, but this left countless grade crossings blocked by railway equipment. Fueled by anger and frustration, Valley residents (always a creative bunch) are finding temporary solutions.

As expected, rumors and speculation are running rampant in the Valley. To calm everyone’s fears/excitement the Railway issued a press release this morning.
